What It Would Cost Man Utd To Sack Mourinho Revealed?

Manchester United fans are growing frustrated with manager Jose Mourinho, with some even calling for him to get sacked. Here is a what the Red Devils would reportedly have to pay the Portuguese tactician should they part ways with him.

Mourinho Warns Man Utd Board

The former Chelsea boss has been an unhappy figure in this pre-season, as he feels the United board has not backed him and given him the players that he believes he requires to catch rivals Premier League champions Manchester City.

According to The Sun, Mourinho has two-years left on his current deal, and would usually be entitled to his full £12 million (R206 million)  a season should he get axed, but there has been a change in his latest extension.

A source close to the club says the Red Devils have inserted a particular clause in the manager’s contract which will now only see him receive one year’s full salary, instead of the entire two-year amount should he get dismissed.

“It became quite a protracted affair when it came to discussing a final settlement with Louis van Gaal,” a source told The Sun.

“The club wanted to avoid a repeat of that again in the future - especially as Jose earns far more than what he did.

“Van Gaal held out for every penny, but even United have to draw the financial line somewhere with Jose.”
